She is sooooo sad. So, story time.

I ordered this beautiful marble queen from an online plant shop. She care super beautiful and healthy.

I decided to repot her into a terra-cotta pot. I was originally going to leave the grower pot in but it was too big to fit inside. So I basically just transferred it with all of its old soil into the new pot (which has drainage.)

But her leaves are soooo droopy. The soil wasn't wet to the touch or anything, I've watered correctly and I know because I have another pothos. But she's still droopy and dying! Please help.

I would take it down and soak it. And check to see if there are any holes or voids in the soil. You did right not disturbing the roots. Clay does dry out faster than plastic.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

Thanks for the help Sally! I was depressed that she might not make it and performed emergency transplant surgery last night.

I put her into a bigger pot (switched one of my other plants out.) And added fresh soil.

She is THRIVING this morning!
